KXPR

Nominated for: BEST FM Radio Station

KXPR 7055 Folsom Blvd Sacramento CA (415) 335-1836

Beginning in 1970 as student-operated KERS at California State University, Sacramento, the organization has seen many changes over the years. In 1979, KERS became KXPR, broadcasting classical music, jazz, news and public affairs programming to central valley residents at 23,000 watts. In the 1980's, KXPR built a new tower, increased their signal power to 40,000 watts, and was the #8 station out of 255 nation wide broadcasting 24 hours a day. In 1991, KXJZ signed on at 50,000 watts, broadcasting jazz, news, public affairs and locally-produced specialty programs. Also in the 1990's, the organization added KXSR in Groveland and KKTO in Tahoe City, and joined all of its stations under Capital Public Radio, Inc.

Recently, Capital Public Radio added KUOP in Stockton, KXJS in Sutter, and KQNC in Quincy. In March of 2004, Capital Public Radio moved in to its new state-of-the-art broadcast studios and offices on the campus of California State University, Sacramento. Over 300,000 listeners tune into classical, jazz, news and public affairs programming each week on one of Capital Public Radio's 7 stations serving California's Central Valley and the Sierra Nevada.

Classical music stations are few and far between. This one is nice. Wish there were more on the radio - don't always want to tune in to the cable stations.
